1. Drawing Room Deceptions
2. Williamson's Wonders
3. Unexplainable Acts
4. The Book or Don't Forget to Point
5. Magic For Dummies

1. Wonderful material. Great read. I use the material, techniques and ideas every day.
2. ''
3. ''
4. Great guys, lots of hidden gems (tweezer coin production is awesome), but this is the one time for me that 'the book' wasn't as good as 'the movie'. These guys need to be seen live.
5. It's a good bit to pull it out during a closeup performance.

Bobo's Coin Magic, Routined Manipulation by Ganson, Stars Of Magic, Royal Road or Expert Card Magic, Maybe something by Walter Cummings. Books are great even if you own the same DVD, written words help video or DVD, like bread and butter.

Here are my top 5:

1. Abracadabra - By Nathaniel Schiffman
2. The Complete Illustrated Book of Close-Up Magic - By Walter B. Gibson
3. Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic - By Mark Wilson
4. The Expert at the Card Table - By S. W. Erdnase
5. Modern Coin Magic - By J. B. Bobo

I would recommend all of these for any magician!
For beginners, look at Abracadabra for a theoretical introduction, then learn some basic skills from Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic!
The Expert at the Card Table and Modern Coin Magic are for those who want to learn some serious manipulation!!!
